Drive-ability today. I was looking at the spring plates. We talked about notching them. I can’t see any marks from them bottoming out on the stops. It seemed to ride decent when I drove it. I’m going hold-off on the notches until I drive it again.JdawgParticipantSeptember 27, 2017 at 9:14 amPost count: 455

I was kind of thinking I’d like it a little lower in the back…is that possible? I love the way your red car sits…You’re probably going to say thats too low? lolFranzModeratorSeptember 27, 2017 at 9:21 amPost count: 4191
Yeah, that is too low for a good driver. My red car drives like garbage…and wearing itself out with every mile.JdawgParticipantSeptember 27, 2017 at 9:24 amPost count: 455JdawgParticipantSeptember 27, 2017 at 9:25 amPost count: 455

I did my normal rounds on the engine, then went over and tidy’d up a few things.

Welded the spring brace back to the skin and touched up with some anthracite paint.
